McLaren 675LT Gets Paint Scheme From Its Dad
McLaren Special Operations created a special McLaren 675LT for a customer with a Gulf Oil paint scheme from the Le Mans class-winning 1997 McLaren F1 GTR

The McLaren 675LT was designed as a lighter, faster version of the 650S, and it gained a lengthened tail section, hence the LT designation. This longer design was partly inspired by the McLaren F1 GTR “longtail.” That race car also featured a longer body.

 

 

One 675LT customer decided bodywork wasn’t enough of a connection to the famous ‘90s racer, so he commissioned the race-inspired paint scheme you see in the pictures. The paint job is a rendition of the 1997 Le Mans GT1 class-winning F1 GTR, which sported a livery based on main sponsor Gulf Oil. It’s not a simple design, and it’s one that McLaren completely painted. McLaren says the whole car took 1,000 hours to finish, and 800 of them were spent on the paint.

 

Aside from the striking paint, the car has some exterior changes. It has vented from fenders, a more prominent roof scoop, and a visible carbon-fiber rear air brake. Inside, the car features black upholstery with contrasting orange and blue stitching, orange vent surrounds and seat belts, and blue handling and powertrain switchgear.
